Baby turning in pelvis video

We know labour is tough on mums – that’s why it’s called labour! But our little bubs are like the unsung heroes of birth – they do so much work before they’re born, and it all goes unnoticed.

If you’ve ever wondered just how babies are able to fit through a pelvis, this fascinating video explains it perfectly. It shows just how they have to turn and twist at each stage so their shoulders and head can maneuver down and out.  The Colchester Hospital video also explains why certain positions are so much better for birthing a babe than others.

It’s certainly an eye-opening insight into how much our tiny little newborns have been through to get earthside.
